Question Boot Help?

Hey everyone I know this is the wrong section however it gets thousands more views and no one has answered my question yet. What are your views on the best terrain park boots. I'm looking for something lightweight and not bulky. I use flow M9se bindings so it needs to be able to slide in and out easily. Any help would be appreciated. I am currently looking at the 2012 32 jp walker boots, but don't know enough about them so any reviews would be great. Thanks

Super light weight, flexible boots: 32 Lashed

Some other "freestyle" type boots are anything with a flex rating of 4 or below.

Make sure they fit YOUR foot and are comfortable.


As long as you aren't getting something super stiff like a Salomon Malamute, I don't think any boot will hinder your freestyle performance.

This. +1
Also, Burton's tend to have a bigger footprint IMO and I have had more trouble getting them in and out of Flos over 32s and K2s.

would you say the 32 lashed or the 32 jp walkers are better?

I like the lashed better than the prospect. But that's just me. To my knowledge the jp version is just a color-way and doesn't affect the performance. The prospect is also a solid boot; it and the lashed seem to be real bread & butter boots for 32. If you're spending more time in the park, check out the jp's they have a softer flex. I do more all mtn and just prefer the medium flex of the lashed.

I assume you mean the ones that don't have the reduced foot print tech.

biggest thing about boots is make sure they fit you!

I have 32 Prion boots. They are super comfortable. The liner is really soft. It is not hat heavy either. Give them a try, go to a shop and try them on. Keep in mind though that any park boot you get isn't going to be long lasting. Mainly because "park" boots are really soft and because they are soft they just fall apart over time. Happened to my Libertines. Not all boots, but most.

Yea its pretty cool, lets guys with bigger boots fit on normal boards because the boot size is comparable to a normal boot a full size smaller..
